WHY

YOUR CHILD SHOULD LEARN KARATE

Karate Schools throughout the world are noted for teaching children things that are not necessarily taught in normal school time. Things like MANNERS, RESPECT, SELF-DISCIPLINE, KEEPING YOUR WORD and HOW TO AVOID CONFLICT WITH OTHERS. Of course, we also teach fighting techniques that can help children defend themselves in case of attack, although we always emphasize students should walk away from violence if possible. CONFIDENCE comes from knowing that you can take care of yourself.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE CLASS ?

A normal class consists of children going through a set of stretching, strengthening and co-ordination exercises, followed by learning the punching, blocking and kicking techniques of the Goju-Ryu system. This is followed by kick bag practice, sparring/self defence drills, games or a story/lecture on Martial Arts Philosophy. We normally finish with a short period of meditation. Beginners are called White Belts and are training to become future Black Belts.
